12:22 am
got the news of her passersby i thought i saw vieira advocating yesterday we've had that experience on her last day fighting for the community and she really summed in an interview she did with gary in 2009 it was part of the story core project in the scombuf you get a sense of her spirit and drive for change she said when they talked in her interview why canned things change it's a simple statement but an important one to carry everyday many of us get stuck in reality was is possible and not but vieira was pushing the boulders and in that sentence why can't change it is a question she held everyday and fought to make sure the answer was yes so i want to
12:23 am
congratulate again, the folks that make that possibly doug schumacher and shaurn and barbara were here everyday the project was a reality so thank you (clapping) of course, to barry for the vision with the st. anthony's foundation and board and staff to enlighten more than a dining hall but a place to find employment and access to tech and clothes and nutrition and housing a really full wrap up approach to how to make this neighborhood healthier and stronger and safer (clapping) and i'm sure doug will thank everyone there is so many folks
12:24 am
that made this possible ultimately from the mayor's office of housing i see joyce crumb from human services and dph preponderance of the evidence e helped and mary go thank you to make sure that is a capacity today and i look forward to seeing the units and the residents who is going lives will be transformed on golden state (clapping). >> so it's true there are an unbelievable number of people from the city side marge go and wolfgang are partners not only here by on many projects are huk huge humane partners from the mayor's office of housing i've got a long list ann and olsen lee and georgia martin and
12:25 am
others from the urban housing and i'm sure there are many others thank you for everything you did to make that possible (clapping) so we're officially 10 percent through the program in case you keep a chart at home the 09 great partner for us is the hud as long as hud for many, many years they've been the key partner for producing housing particularly for seniors in some ways a sad waterfront momentum this is the last hud 202 projects in california for whatever reason they've chopped did funding that provided the
12:26 am
subsidies for this beautiful spot so hopefully that will change some day in not we're here to celebrate and we couldn't have done it without you from the team from hud to say more is larry ferguson the production chief our kids go to state and federal school together and a champion of housing. >> (clapping.) thank you doug before i get going i want to say on a perm note i'm very honored and humbled thanks again doug. >> home is where the heart is home is where the heart is iemth going to talk about hud's $13 million in section 202 capital that's itself sticks and bricks financing going to the
12:27 am
senior avenue, i won't dwell on the project rental assistance that hud will be providing to keep those beautiful apartments affordable to our low income seniors i'm not going to tell us the hard working go contractors who put their hearts into this development and the stimulus to all levels of the economy this project has provided so far i won't go along about the green and sustainable features about the state of the art of this design and this is one of the last section 202 affordable housing that will be coming online for the foreseeable future i will identify the hud staff who worked with our many partners to make this project a reality those hud staff put
12:28 am
their hearts into this and i'd like to point out the hud folks if you get our names called racing rise your hand. (calling names). (clapping) and our esteemed hud council (calling names) and i especially will speak to our seniors because their why we're trial here our seniors will call this place home and i say home because what's being create here 1902 just simply apartments or housing those are homes you see this concept of a home transcends having a roof over our head and our seniors will live independently in their new homes as long as they're able to distribute and access to a full
12:29 am
range of 13069 services in fact the services at vourgz are measure of our nation's heart our nation's love and our nation's respect for our seniors home is where the heart is thank you. (clapping.) >> that's correct larry and thank you for thanking the hud staff i want to thank the hud staff for not only this project but the many projects i'm sure we'll work together regardless 69 federal proimsz so with that, i want to introduce someone that needs no introduction i think along with supervisor kim the two are incredibly committed to making that city for all as the mayor
12:30 am
likes to say a champion of affordable housing for many, many years has worked in this field as a participation and now as an elected it official and policymaker he is something that i think made it clear this is a huge priority not only in this term with that i want to introduce mayor ed lee (clapping). >> thank you doug doug in many ways this is an honor of you and certainly of our wonderful combination between you and st. anthony's i want to be here because i've known vourgz and want to say thank you to jane kim we both continue this record pace of cutting ribbons and opening doors of opportunity and
